Soka, Asoka, Ashoka or Ixora Chinensis is shrubs, 0.8-2 meters high, glabrous; branchlets are dark brown and shiny at first, and gray with lines when old. The leaves of Ixora Chinensis are opposite, sometimes several into 4 whorls due to the extremely short internode distance, lanceolate, oblong-lanceolate to oblong-oblanceolate, 6-13 cm long, 3-4 cm wide, blunt or apex Round, short pointed or round at the base; midribs are flattened on the top and slightly concave, convex on the bottom, side veins are 7-8 on each side, slender, conspicuous, connected to each other near the leaf margin, transverse veins are loose and conspicuous; The petiole is very short and thick or absent; the stipules are 5-7 mm long, the base is broad, and connate into a sheath shape, the tip is long and acuminate, and the acuminate part is tapered, longer than the sheath. The inflorescence is terminal, multi-flowered, with a short total pedicel; the total pedicel is 5-15 mm long, and the branches are red, and it is rarely powdery pilose. The base often has 2 small leaves supporting; bracts and bracteoles Tiny, born in pairs at the base of the torus; flowers with pedicel or no; calyx tube 1.5-2 mm long, calyx eaves 4-lobed, lobes very short, 0.8 mm long, short pointed or obtuse; corolla red or reddish yellow, long in full bloom 2.5-3 cm, 4 lobed apex, lobes obovate or nearly round, extended or reversed, 5-7 mm long, 4-5 mm wide, blunt or round at the tip; filaments are extremely short, anthers are oblong, approximately in length 2 mm, 2-lobed at the base; style short protruding outside the crown tube, stigma 2, initially close together, diverging when blooming, slightly curved downward. The fruit is subglobose, twin, with a groove in the middle, red and black when mature; the Ixora Chinensis seed is long and 4-4.5 mm wide, convex on the top and concave on the bottom. It's flowering from May to July.

Asoka is not resistant to low temperatures. The optimum temperature for growth is 23~32℃. When the temperature is lower than 20℃, its growth is weakened and the flowering is obviously reduced. However, if the sunshine is sufficient, there will still be a certain number of Flower buds; when the temperature is lower than 10℃, its physiological activity will decrease, Growth is slow; when the temperature is lower than 0℃, it will produce freezing damage. Ixora Chinensis likes acidic soil, the most suitable soil pH is 5~5.5. Soil with good drainage and good fertility retention can grow well. The best cultivation soil is sandy loam or humus loam rich in organic matter. If the soil is alkalescent, the growth of Ixora Chinensis will be blocked and the growth will be poor.

Watering and Fertilizing
These plants should be watered regularly and fertilized monthly especially at its early stages of development. Use a general fertilizer for plants, they will need to be watered once or twice a week, depending on what time of year. Avoid cutting off large portions of this plant’s leaves as they produce oxygen and photosynthesize energy from sunlight to make food for the plant.

Mulching, Pruning, and trimming
Mulch is an essential part of garden and landscape design. It is used to protect the soil from the elements, prevent weeds from growing, conserve water, and provide nutrients to the soil. In addition, when you mulch around the base of the plant, it will help the roots grow strong and prevent them from drying out. Ixora plant should ideally have a layer of organic mulch around it for a for successful growth.

Pruning and trimming are essential tasks for any gardener because it helps maintain plants’ health. The trimming process should be done at specific intervals to ensure that plants stay healthy and produce their best flowers. On the whole, Ixora plants do not require much pruning. You will only need to trim their branches when they start to look too bushy. This will make the Ixora plant appear more attractive and keep its size in check. If you notice that the plants are starting to look unkempt or if the flowers are looking tired or droopy, then you can prune them. Trim anytime during the summer months.

Sowing & Germination
Too much moisture can cause the seeds to rot and course poor germination. Seeds should be kept dry until sowing to ensure good germination and also soaked overnight before planting. It is best to use a container with holes for drainage to help prevent root rot. When planting, use a good quality potting mix that has been amended in order to improve its physical properties, such as water retention, permeability, water infiltration, drainage, aeration, and structural stability the ultimate goal is to create a more favorable environment for roots. Make sure that they are spaced evenly apart in the pot. Keep the soil or its environment around 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the germination period. The seedlings should be kept in a shaded location for the first few weeks until the plant has the strength to be moved outside.

Soka, Asoka, Ashoka atau Ixora Chinensis adalah semak belukar, tinggi 0,8-2 meter, gundul; cabang-cabangnya berwarna coklat tua dan mengkilap pada awalnya, dan abu-abu dengan garis-garis ketika tua. Daun Ixora Chinensis berseberangan, kadang-kadang beberapa menjadi 4 lingkaran karena jarak ruas yang sangat pendek, lanset, lonjong-lanset sampai lonjong-oblanset, panjang 6-13 cm, lebar 3-4 cm, tumpul atau puncak Bulat, runcing pendek atau bulat di pangkal; pelepah diratakan di bagian atas dan sedikit cekung, cembung di bagian bawah, urat samping 7-8 di setiap sisi, ramping, mencolok, terhubung satu sama lain di dekat tepi daun, urat melintang longgar dan mencolok; Tangkai daun sangat pendek dan tebal atau tidak ada; tangkai daun panjangnya 5-7 mm, pangkalnya lebar, dan menyambung menjadi bentuk selubung, ujungnya panjang dan tajam, dan bagian tajamnya meruncing, lebih panjang dari selubung. Perbungaannya terminal, multi-bunga, dengan total pedicel pendek; total pedicel panjangnya 5-15 mm, dan cabang-cabangnya berwarna merah, dan jarang berbentuk bubuk pilose. Pangkal sering memiliki 2 daun kecil yang mendukung; bracts dan bracteoles Tiny, lahir berpasangan di dasar torus; bunga dengan pedicel atau tidak ada; tabung kelopak panjang 1,5-2 mm, kelopak kelopak 4 lobus, lobus sangat pendek, panjang 0,8 mm, pendek runcing atau tumpul; mahkota merah atau kuning kemerahan, panjang mekar penuh 2. 5-3 cm, 4 lobus apeks, lobus lonjong atau hampir bulat, diperpanjang atau dibalik, panjang 5-7 mm, lebar 4-5 mm, tumpul atau bulat di ujung; filamen sangat pendek, kepala sari berbentuk lonjong, kira-kira panjangnya 2 mm, 2 lobus di pangkal; gaya pendek menonjol di luar tabung mahkota, kepala putik 2, awalnya berdekatan, menyimpang saat mekar, sedikit melengkung ke bawah. Buahnya subglobose, kembar, dengan lekukan di tengahnya, berwarna merah dan hitam saat matang; biji Ixora Chinensis panjang dan lebar 4-4,5 mm, cembung di bagian atas dan cekung di bagian bawah. Berbunga dari bulan Mei hingga Juli.

Asoka tidak tahan terhadap suhu rendah. Suhu optimal untuk pertumbuhan adalah 23 ~ 32 ℃. Ketika suhu lebih rendah dari 20 ℃, pertumbuhannya melemah dan pembungaannya jelas berkurang. Namun, jika sinar matahari cukup, masih akan ada sejumlah kuncup bunga; ketika suhu lebih rendah dari 10 ℃, aktivitas fisiologisnya akan menurun, Pertumbuhannya lambat; ketika suhu lebih rendah dari 0 ℃, itu akan menghasilkan kerusakan akibat pembekuan. Ixora Chinensis menyukai tanah asam, pH tanah yang paling cocok adalah 5 ~ 5,5. Tanah dengan drainase yang baik dan retensi kesuburan yang baik dapat tumbuh dengan baik. Tanah budidaya terbaik adalah lempung berpasir atau lempung humus yang kaya bahan organik. Jika tanah bersifat alkalescent, pertumbuhan Ixora Chinensis akan terhambat dan pertumbuhannya akan buruk.

Penyiraman dan Pemupukan.
Tanaman ini harus disiram secara teratur dan dipupuk setiap bulan terutama pada tahap awal perkembangannya. Gunakan pupuk umum untuk tanaman, mereka perlu disiram sekali atau dua kali seminggu, tergantung pada waktu tahun berapa. Hindari memotong sebagian besar daun tanaman ini karena daun-daun tersebut menghasilkan oksigen dan berfotosintesis energi dari sinar matahari untuk membuat makanan bagi tanaman.

Mulsa, Pemangkasan, dan pemangkasan.
Mulsa adalah bagian penting dari desain taman dan lanskap. Mulsa digunakan untuk melindungi tanah dari elemen-elemen, mencegah gulma tumbuh, menghemat air, dan menyediakan nutrisi bagi tanah. Selain itu, ketika Anda membuat mulsa di sekitar pangkal tanaman, itu akan membantu akar tumbuh kuat dan mencegahnya mengering. Tanaman Ixora idealnya memiliki lapisan mulsa organik di sekitarnya agar pertumbuhannya berhasil.

Pemangkasan dan pemangkasan adalah tugas penting bagi setiap tukang kebun karena membantu menjaga kesehatan tanaman. Proses pemangkasan harus dilakukan pada interval tertentu untuk memastikan tanaman tetap sehat dan menghasilkan bunga terbaiknya. Secara keseluruhan, tanaman Ixora tidak memerlukan banyak pemangkasan. Anda hanya perlu memangkas cabang-cabangnya ketika mulai terlihat terlalu lebat. Ini akan membuat tanaman Ixora tampak lebih menarik dan menjaga ukurannya tetap terkendali. Jika Anda melihat tanaman mulai terlihat tidak terawat atau jika bunganya terlihat lelah atau terkulai, maka Anda bisa memangkasnya. Pangkas kapan saja selama bulan-bulan musim panas.

Penaburan & Perkecambahan
Terlalu banyak kelembaban dapat menyebabkan benih membusuk dan tentu saja perkecambahan yang buruk. Benih harus dijaga tetap kering sampai disemai untuk memastikan perkecambahan yang baik dan juga direndam semalaman sebelum ditanam. Yang terbaik adalah menggunakan wadah dengan lubang drainase untuk membantu mencegah busuk akar. Saat menanam, gunakan campuran pot berkualitas baik yang telah diubah untuk meningkatkan sifat fisiknya, seperti retensi air, permeabilitas, infiltrasi air, drainase, aerasi, dan stabilitas struktural, yang tujuan akhirnya adalah menciptakan lingkungan yang lebih menguntungkan bagi akar. Pastikan jaraknya merata di dalam pot. Jaga agar tanah atau lingkungannya sekitar 70 derajat Fahrenheit selama periode perkecambahan. Bibit harus disimpan di lokasi yang teduh selama beberapa minggu pertama sampai tanaman memiliki kekuatan untuk dipindahkan ke luar.

Soka, Ashoka utawa Ixora Chinensis minangka semak, dhuwuré 0,8-2 meter, glabrous; branchlets sing coklat peteng lan mengilap ing kawitan, lan werna abu-abu karo garis nalika lawas. Godhong Ixora Chinensis ana ing sisih ngarep, kadhangkala sawetara dadi 4 whorls amarga jarak internode sing cendhak banget, lanceolate, oblong-lanceolate nganti oblong-oblanceolate, dawane 6-13 cm, ambane 3-4 cm, tumpul utawa puncak Bulat, runcing cendhak. utawa bunder ing dhasar; midribs flattened ing sisih ndhuwur lan rada cekung, cembung ing ngisor, vena sisih 7-8 ing saben sisih, ramping, conspicuous, disambungake siji liyane cedhak pinggiran godhong, vena transversal sing longgar lan conspicuous; Petiole cendhak banget lan kandel utawa ora ana; stipules dawane 5-7 mm, pangkal amba, lan connate dadi wangun sarung, tip dawa lan acuminate, lan bagean acuminate tapered, luwih dawa tinimbang sarung. Inflorescence iku terminal, multi-flowered, kanthi total pedicel cendhak; total pedicel dawane 5-15 mm, lan cabang sing abang, lan iku arang powdery pilose. Dasar asring duwe 2 godhong cilik sing ndhukung; bracts lan bracteoles Cilik, lair ing pasangan ing dasar torus; kembang karo pedicels utawa ora; tabung calyx 1,5-2 mm dawa, calyx eaves 4-lobed, lobus cendhak banget, 0,8 mm dawa, cendhak nuding utawa obtuse; corolla abang utawa abang kuning, dawa ing mekar lengkap 2,5-3 cm, 4 lobed apex, lobus obovate utawa meh bunder, ditambahi utawa mbalikke, 5-7 mm dawa, 4-5 mm sudhut, kethul utawa bunder ing tip; filamen cendhak banget, anthers oblong, kira-kira dawane 2 mm, 2-lobed ing dasar; gaya cendhak protruding njaba tabung makutha, stigma 2, pisanan cedhak bebarengan, diverging nalika blooming, rada mlengkung mudhun. Woh iku subglobose, kembar, kanthi alur ing tengah, abang lan ireng nalika diwasa; wiji Ixora Chinensis dawa lan ambane 4-4,5 mm, cembung ing ndhuwur lan cekung ing ngisor. Iki mekar saka Mei nganti Juli.

Ashoka ora tahan kanggo suhu sing kurang. Suhu paling luweh kanggo wutah yaiku 23-32 ℃. Nalika suhu luwih murah tinimbang 20 ℃, wutahé saya lemah lan kembangé suda. Nanging, yen sinar srengenge cukup, isih ana sawetara kuncup Kembang; nalika suhu luwih murah tinimbang 10 ℃, aktivitas fisiologis bakal mudhun, Wutah alon; nalika suhu luwih murah tinimbang 0 ℃, bakal ngasilake karusakan beku. Ixora Chinensis seneng lemah asam, pH lemah sing paling cocog yaiku 5 ~ 5,5. Lemah kanthi saluran banyu sing apik lan retensi kesuburan sing apik bisa tuwuh kanthi apik. Lemah budidaya sing paling apik yaiku lempung pasir utawa humus sing sugih bahan organik. Yen lemah iku alkalescent, wutah Ixora Chinensis bakal diblokir lan wutah bakal miskin.

Nyirami lan Pupuk

Tanduran iki kudu disiram kanthi rutin lan dibuahi saben wulan, utamane ing tahap awal pangembangane. Gunakake pupuk umum kanggo tetanduran, kudu disiram sepisan utawa kaping pindho saben minggu, gumantung ing wektu taun. Aja ngethok sebagian besar godhong tanduran iki amarga ngasilake oksigen lan energi fotosintesis saka srengenge kanggo nggawe panganan kanggo tanduran.

Mulsa, Pruning lan pruning

Mulch minangka bagean penting saka desain taman lan lanskap. Mulsa digunakake kanggo nglindhungi lemah saka unsur, nyegah suket saka tuwuh, ngirit banyu, lan nyedhiyakake nutrisi kanggo lemah. Kajaba iku, nalika mulch ngubengi pangkal tanduran, bakal mbantu oyod tuwuh kuwat lan nyegah supaya ora garing. Tanduran Ixora saenipun kudu duwe lapisan mulsa organik ing saubengé kanggo pertumbuhan sing sukses.

Pruning lan pruning minangka tugas penting kanggo saben tukang kebon amarga mbantu njaga kesehatan tanduran. Proses pruning kudu ditindakake kanthi interval tartamtu kanggo njamin tanduran tetep sehat lan ngasilake kembang sing paling apik. Sakabèhé, tetanduran Ixora ora mbutuhake pruning akeh. Sampeyan mung kudu motong cabang nalika katon banget grumbul. Iki bakal nggawe tanduran Ixora katon luwih atraktif lan njaga ukurane ing kontrol. Yen sampeyan ngelingi tanduran wiwit katon ora rapi utawa yen kembang katon kesel utawa drooping, sampeyan bisa prune. Prune kapan wae ing mangsa panas.

Sowing & Germination

Kelembapan sing berlebihan bisa nyebabake rot wiji lan mesthi germination sing ora apik. Wiji kudu tetep garing nganti nyebar kanggo mesthekake germination apik lan uga rendhem sewengi sadurunge tanduran. Luwih becik nggunakake wadhah kanthi bolongan got kanggo nyegah rot akar. Nalika nandur, gunakake campuran pot kualitas apik sing wis diowahi kanggo nambah sifat fisik, kayata penylametan banyu, permeabilitas, infiltrasi banyu, drainase, aerasi lan stabilitas struktural, tujuan pungkasan yaiku nggawe lingkungan sing luwih apik kanggo tanduran. oyot. Priksa manawa ana jarak sing rata ing pot. Jaga lemah utawa lingkungan sekitar 70 derajat Fahrenheit sajrone periode germination. Bibit kudu disimpen ing panggonan sing teduh kanggo sawetara minggu pisanan nganti tanduran kasebut nduweni kekuatan kanggo pindhah menyang njaba.
